Product Review: Giella Eye M Glam Mineral Highlighter

I’ve recently joined Giella Custom Blend Cosmetics as their first Brand Ambassador in the UAE. I am thrilled to be part of the Giella family because it’s a brand that I truly believe in. Before I was even approached to become a brand ambassador, Eye M Glam is already my go-to highlighter. As a beauty writer, I promised myself that I will only recommend and promote products that I truly believe in. I don’t see the point of promoting something that you don’t actually like, it just doesn’t make sense to me. Giella products are hand-crafted with ingredients selected to customize the perfect product just for you. Products can be customized for allergies including nut oils and butters. She stands behind her products as being the finest in quality, texture and shade selections. All GIELLA products use the most pure ingredients that can  be found giving their makeup real skincare benefits. Giella is based and manufactured in the US but they deliver internationally and all the products are available online. All Giella products are cruelty free, non-pore …

Product Review: Huda Beauty Textured Shadows Palette Rose Gold Edition

Since October is my birthday month, I get to be spoiled a little and one of my birthday presents is The Huda Beauty Textured Shadows Palette in Rose Gold Edition. Yaaassss! I’ve been eyeing on Huda’s products for a long time now, she’s such a business inspiration. From a finance analyst to a make-up mogul, what a transition! Hands down to that, you go girl! I’ve tried some of her lashes and I must say they are amazing! They look gorgeous on my clients with wide & deep set eyes but I don’t like using it for myself since I tend to go natural and man, those lashes are not subtle! I also heard a lot of good reviews on her lip contour. I don’t usually go crazy and line up at Sephora just to get newly launched products. I’m not yet there, but maybe soon? fingers crossed hopefully not. HAH! But I was chuffed that I got this recently launched palette and I got to try it right away so I thought I’d do a …

Product Review: Benjabelle Brush Tree

If you are a make up artist or someone who uses make up brushes a lot, I know that we share the same woes of having to wash and dry our brushes constantly. Cleaning & tidying up my kit is my least favourite part as a make up artist but hygiene is the most important factor involved in your craft. I personally wash my brushes every after use especially if I use my brushes on my clients. Never ever go come to a job with your brushes unclean, you’d look unprofessional and uhm, disgusting. Who wants that? Washing your brushes constantly affects its longevity because the water tends to seep into the stem of your brush. I’ve recently bought a Benjabelle Sunflower Brush Tree, I bought it because it would save me space as I dry my brushes. I usually lay all my brushes flat on a table but it takes a lot of space and you have to roll it over to make sure that all the sides will dry out. Benjabelle brush tree is …

5 Brands That I Hoarded at Beauty World 2015

There are a few events here in Dubai that I look forward to yearly and one of which is Beauty World. I have been attending for 3 years now and the reason why I look forward to it is because I get to know about new products in the market from all over the world, I meet new people in the same industry and I get to buy products that are not usually available here in the middle east with marked down prices! The top 5 brands that I love from Beauty World 2015 are the following: 1. Make Up Designory  For the previous years, they did not sell a single product at Beauty World and I got a message from a friend and a fellow make-up lover that MUD is selling some products. I dragged my beau to rush to Hall 6 and hoard some products! The products that I bought were eye shadow and cheek color. I was really tempted to buy their lipsticks but I still have my Kryolan Palette though their …

5 Pre-Make Up Products to Use During Dubai Summer

Summer is fast approaching and if you’re in the middle of the desert with 40 degrees Celsius of heat to beat, here are pre-make up products that I love to use and I find very effective even in the midst of summer. 1. Toner- Tea Tree Water from Lush Cosmetics Every morning, I start my make-up routine by using Tea Tree Water from Lush Cosmetics on my face. I started using this product since last year and since then I have never skipped a day without using it. I have combination skin and I get zits every now and then, using this product doesn’t just refresh me which is a great way to prep up my skin for make-up but it also dries out my pimples.
